WTB pop-in whammy, can't find just the bar

Ok, I just broke my whammy bar in my RG350DX, but I replaced the trem with a an older RG one from the 80's or early 90's. I am looking for one that pops into the joint or body of the Floyd rose, and have searched Floydrose.com, ****, Jemsite and amazon with no success. I do not need the entire system, but just the bar itself. The bar does not screw into the trem nor has a ball joint on top to anchor it down. If you could guide me to the site/person that sells this type of tremolo that would be helpful.

Thanks for responding

Read through this page and figure out which tremolo you have:

Then get the appropriate bar from Rich:

That'd be the Edge / LoPro / Edge Pro bar. According to his page, Rich has 42 of them. Lol.

It's a 350, it's either the EP2 or ED3, neither of which I stock, although I probably will be in the future sometime.

He replaced the trem with something off an 80s or 90s RG though. It sounds like he has an Edge or LoPro...?

I had my uncle modify another Ibanez/FR trem from an early 90's RG.
He tapped parts and ground some of the edges to make it fit a newer 350DX.
Rich - Just sent you an email!

I just wanted to say thanks to you guys for pointing me in the direction of Rich, and to him for speedy delivery and an excellent product!!!!
Guitar plays much better with the new bar installed and does not float back and forth in the cradle anymore. Floating tricks and "Satch screams" are much easier. I highly recommend other Jemsite users to shop @ Ibanezrules!!!!!!!!!!
Thanks again!
